Description

The '63 Studebaker Champ is a casting replicating a racing version of the classic early '60s light truck manufactured by Studebaker for the North American market. The Hot Wheels casting takes the basic truck and has it lowered and fitted with a tonneau cover. This tonneau cover is made from the same material as the interior piece and on versions with a plastic interior, a person can use their fingernail to lift it and reveal that this piece has the brackets molded to hold the rear wheels in place.

The base of the casting reads '63 Studebaker. The casting was retooled in 2022; the wing is no longer part of the tonneau cover, instead being part of the body. There is a protrusion from the wing which acts as one of the rivet posts.
